Dear customer

Thank you for being online.

When exposed to something they’re allergic to, some people experience a potentially life-threatening reaction called anaphylaxis. This reaction is called as anaphylactic reaction.It needs to be treated right away.

Epinephrine is the most effective treatment for anaphylaxis, and the shot should be given right away.

Anti histamines such as diphenhydramine) and histamine-2 (H2) blockers (such as cimetidine) are given intravenously until symptoms disappear.

Tests will be done to find out the allergen & to prevent/avoid it in future.

Family member should always carry a self-administered epinephrine. During an anaphylactic attack, the child should be given the drug using an autoinjector (EpiPen, etc).

Please do not worry & follow the above described measures.

Thank you

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
